The Making of Bryony Gordon

Welcome to the second series of The Making of... from The Female Lead

Our guest this week is the writer and campaigner Bryony Gordon. As well as her weekly column for the Telegraph, Bryony is a prolific author - writing six books in the last seven years. These memoirs are funny and painful explorations of mental health and addiction, and her most recent book No Such Thing as Normal is a practical guide for those struggling to cope

Bryony is a passionate mental health campaigner and in 2016 she founded Mental Health Mates - a network of peer support groups. In 2017 she started her Mad World podcast, where Prince Harry chose to give his first interview about the mental health problems he has experienced. In our conversation we talked about addiction, rehab, motherhood, mental health, and why it’s good to choose the slightly dull guy.
